BP Oil has been frantically dumping a gargantuan amount of Corexit into the gulf against the EPA wishes, not to just disperse oil, but to alter the appearance of how bad the oil spill truly is. The Corexit dispersant causes the oil to emulsify into the water and subsequently not float on the surface to be an eye sore. People cannot get “as upset” about what they cannot see. Like a magician, BP Oil distracts us with the one hand [Top Kill] so we do not notice what the other hand is doing [fish kill.] Corexit is anti-freeze folks.
“BP to EPA: Talk to the hand because the other hand ain't listening”
May 20th, 2010 the Environmental Protection Agency demanded BP Oil cease using Corexit products as an oil dispersant. BP Oil ignored them, but why? Researchers at USF scientists said the use of dispersants is causing the oil to be as dense as the water so it does not float. Huge underwater plumes that are miles wide and miles deep, although they have not pegged the source. Essentially a more substantial amount of the oil should have been floating on the water so at least the sun could degrade it naturally, or clean up crews could better contain it.
The impact on all marine life is death by suffocation. Oil and Corexit are loved by algae which grows rampant and takes all oxygen out of the water. BP oil is deliberately suffocating our marine and wildlife so the spill does not “look so bad.” BP Oils hierarchy of needs at this time is to reduce pressure from the press and public even if that means visually making the spill less visible. They have absolutely no ethics at this point and should be moved away from the area allowing objective parties in to handle this.
